There was a non-confidence motion brought forward at Monday night's Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey Association's executive meeting.
Mike Walls, who had been president for less than one year, was voted out.
David Liversidge, who has been vice-president of the association for four months, said he is "disappointed."
"I'm frustrated. It's disappointing that our town hall meeting went the wrong way," said interim president Liversidge about the Feb. 7 meeting when Walls first talked about hiring a full-time operations coach.
According to Liversidge, the original idea of hiring an operations coach came from one of the parents, before Walls even got to the meeting.
"I believe it is personal vendettas that have nothing to do with the kids in the association," he said about Walls' being ousted. "I'm disappointed that some people on the executive are allowing their personal opinions to affect the association," he said, adding that there are people who didn't like the way Walls presented the idea, and for that reason, they wanted him out.
"To be honest with you, the vote that was done in the [Feb. 18 executive] meeting may be null and void. By press time he might be back in," said Liversidge.
Walls had no comment. He would only tell The TIMES: "Our constitution speaks very clearly that only the president can speak to the press."
